Windows 10: Does anyone know what Apache Tomcat/6.0.24 is?

    Does anyone know what Apache Tomcat/6.0.24 is?


    I installed W10 on a W7 PC last weekend. Every time I bring up FireFox I get a Apache Tomcat 404 error.

    According to Google, it is some kind of Java development tool. I thought I knew aIl of the apps on my PCs but apparently I don't. This one is not in Programs so I cannot just uninstall it.

    Since I do not use it, I assume that I should be able to uninstall it without any problem. First. can I? and secondly, how?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Apache is a Linux Server program. Look at the site that its accessing when you first start Firefox.

    Thanks for the reply. I get a HTTP Status 404 with no link. The next time I get the message I will see if there is a live link that tells me more. There is a link in Google that tells me what to change the server to but it does not tell me how to do it. I suppose they want me to enter a Linux string somewhere but I do not know why I even have the app loaded. When I loaded W10, it reared its ugly head.

    Yes - you are close.

    You shouldn't have to enter any Linux string. Apparently the link you are trying to access is the Apache Server, instead of the web site.

    For example, the company that hosts my web site uses Apache Server software. But when you access my web site it looks and acts like any other site. Gulf Coast Steel Guitar
